Earth Day 2013: Mythical Creatures Plan Protest

Here is another classic CH 2.0 post in honor of Earth day 2013.   I recently received a message from none other than Bigfoot!  Not wanting to miss an opportunity for a good story, I decided to interview him. Me:  Hello Bigfoot, thanks for contacting me.  BTW, do you go by Bigfoot? Bigfoot:  Thanks for answering, FYI, my name is Bill. Me:  Mmkay, Bill it is.  What was the reason for contacting me? Bill:  Well, we’re planning a protest.  We’re tired of being compared to something so ridiculous, that we end up looking bad. Me:  OK then, I have a couple of questions then.  Who are “we?”  and […]

Earth Day 2013: Is it Just One Big Communist Plot?

In honor of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday, here is a classic post from A Conservative Teacher. Happy Lenin’s Birthday Is it a coincidence that I’m wishing you this today? I don’t think so. Earth Day arrives on the exact same day as Lenin’s Birthday. One of the very first Earth day celebrations took place exactly on the 100 year anniversary of Comrade Lenin’s birthday. Many former communists saw Earth Day, with its goals and interests, as being very similar to the goals and interests of the great communist Lenin. Does this coincidence convince you that Earth Day is a […]

Earth Day 2013: In Search of the Missing Myth

It’s Earth Day Hippie Burn Out/ Get High and Celebrate Marxism Day!  So, to commemorate it with the prerequisite amount of ridicule, here is the first of several classic CH 2.0 posts.  Enjoy! Now friends, since the war on women has backfired, gun control was defeated, and the Boston Marathon Bombers were not white,  the messiah is creating more and more distractions from his economic failure.  But there is one thing that is conspicuous in its absence.  What the hell happened to global warming?  It’s taken a back seat during the campaign.  Since when is the apocalypse put on hold?   I […]

Earth Day 2013: The Secret Bloody History of Earth Day

Happy Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday.  This is the first in a series of posts today regarding the wonderful leftist tradition of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday.  Last year, Soopermexican published an info-graphic that infuriated the left.  If it infuriates the left, I certainly don’t want to be left out, so I obtained permission to publish it here. So, at the request of Soopermexican, share this far and wide.  There will be three more posts throughout the day.  Keep stopping  back for more Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday fun! Updated to correct my error, it is Lenin’s birthday, NOT Stalin’s.  […]

Drakes Bay Oyster Company Killed by Bureaucratic Fiat

Imagine that you run a business.  Also, imagine that the business had been in existence for nearly 100 years.  Then, imagine with the stroke of a pen, an unelected bureaucrat ended your likelihood.  I did happen, the Drakes Bay Oyster Company was killed off.   Moonbattery has a video describing the families plight, as well as the intentional lies used by the government to shut it down. In the end, the government did close down the business. And, apparently, the government simply made up “evidence” to justify it. I would also reinforce the point made by the scientist in the video. Once people think that […]

Alarmists Complain About Heartland Institute Pointing out “Inconvenient Truths”

What happens when a Conservative think tank points out that some mass killers, or other bad guys, were also climate alarmists?  Alarmists go on a tirade of hypocrisy! Here is some more from the Guardian… The Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based rightwing thinktank notorious for promoting climate scepticism, has launched quite possibly one of the most ill-judged poster campaigns in the history of ill-judged poster campaigns. I’ll let its own press release for its upcoming conference explain, as there’s simply no need to finesse it further: Billboards in Chicago paid for by The Heartland Institute point out that some of the world’s most notorious criminals […]

Coming Soon: The Purge of the TV Weathermen

global warming hoax

It seems that not enough TV weathermen are spreading the word about Climate Change The Big Lie.  Consequently, lefties are promoting an offensive to either convert, or get rid of those that hold fast to the truth.  Weasel Zippers has more… Concerned that too many “deniers” are in the meteorology business, global warming activists this month launched a campaign to recruit local weathermen to hop aboard the alarmism bandwagon and expose those who are not fully convinced that the world is facing man-made doom. The Forecast the Facts campaign — led by 350.org, the League of Conservation Voters and the Citizen Engagement Lab […]

Environmental Scientist Caught Ignoring Evidence “to win”

I love science, and generally respect scientists.  Science has increased our lifespans, and has created the very technology that allows us to communicate information that is avoided by the MSM and that the government would rather we not have.  So, when scientists are caught behaving badly, I get a bit irritable.  We’ve seen the evidence that the ClimateGate scientists were cooking the numbers to “hide the decline.”  We also got to read how they were using pressure and otherwise conspiring to prevent contradictory information from being published.  Now, there is an additional case to examine.  Kindly take a look at […]

Record Heat? Not so Much

global warming hoax

It seems that the MSM, and other, more openly leftist sources, are making much  of the heat wave.  However, as Noel Sheppard points out, it’s really much ado about nothing… Problem is, according to the National Climatic Data Center, and marvelously reported by the Hockey Schtick Sunday, almost no temperature records were actually broken: [T]he NOAA database of all-time Max Temperature…shows that there were no records broken on July 17, July 18, July 19, or July 20th. A total of 4 stations broke records on July 21, 20 on July 22, and 10 on July 23, 2011. That’s right. There […]

AGW RIP: Overcome by Fatal Dose of Reality

Over the last sevaeral years, I have, gleefully, covered the ever-growing and multiplying holes that were appearing in the “settled science” of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).  Now, I think it’s time to declare it legally dead.  As for evidence, I would cite the following from Mark Morano at Climate Depot… The scientific reality is that from A-Z, the scientific case for man-made climate fears has collapsed. TheArctic has rebounded in recent years, the Antarctic sea ice extent has been at or near record extent in past few summers, polar bears appear to be thriving, sea level is not showing acceleration and may be dropping, Mount Kilimanjaro melt […]

Covert Operations of the UN’s Agenda 21 and Their Agents for Sustainable Development

What is Agenda 21 and what is Sustainable Development? If you don’t know, then welcome to the club. I was only recently made aware of what they are by Cheryl Pass of the My Tea Party Chronicle blog. Cheryl has written three recent articles on this subject that are, in my opinion, must reading.  One was written on March 5, 2011, one on March 6, 2011 and. the most recent article was written on March 8, 2011. Apart from being typically well written, there are numerous useful links, which give the reader a chance to  take a mind opening journey […]

Established Science Retroactive Redux

With all of the “calling it something else” going on with Global Warming, “Climate Chaos,” and “Global Climate Disruption,”  I thought it might be fun to go back in time and examine the the “established science.” There are some old articles from the 70′s available, so we’ll do some excerpts, and some magazine covers.  Note that the covers may not be related directly to the posted material. Telltale signs are everywhere —from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest.Since the […]

Global Warming Causes More Record Cold

It seems that this winter is setting up to be even more severely cold than the last.  Of course, when record cold and snow came last winter, the alarmists said it was caused by global warning.  Or, they are saying that the cold is a temporary exception to they over all warming pattern.   They are sticking with this, for now… “Even though this is quite a cold winter by recent standards it is still perfectly consistent with predictions for global warming,” said Dr Myles Allen, head of the Climate Dynamics group at Department of Physics, University of Oxford. “If […]

More Global Warming Irony: Record Cold at Climate Confab

Remember last year’s climate conference at Copenhagen?  It was a great time, complete with the unseasonal cold and snow that made the AGW protesters look…well…really silly.  So, it seems, they decided to hold this years propaganda fest in a warmer location.  Cancun Mexico was selected, and I’m thinking that they really could not have expected this… “Gore effect” strikes Cancun Climate Conference 3 days in a row: Dr. Roy Spencer, who is in Cancun representing climate skepticism on behalf of CFACT writes on his blog: Today’s my first full day in Cancun at COP-16, and as I emerged from my hotel […]

The Musings of a Tired Blogger

I don’t know about you folks, but the weekend was an *sskicking monster that had it’s way with me, and then moved on.  Between being sick, and then the Great Christmas  Tree Light Fiasco on 2010, I’m glad to be going back to work! Well, back to something more simple and enjoyable…politics!  There have been a few ideas that have been perolating in my skull over the last week or so, I thought I might quick hit them, and see what the readers think. #1:  ObamaCare vs. Abortion Yes, I put the “vs.” in for a reason.  I’m not a […]

Statists Sticking to Global Warming: Some Propose Rationing

Well, our would-be overlords just keep on plugging away at the whole AGW chicken little dance. You know, the one where we have to submit to cradle to grave control of some level of government, never to breathe free again? Well, those would-be overlords are having another confab this year, in Cancun. Stockholm was a bust, with the unseasonably excessive cold and snow…you know, because of the warming and all? Yes, I’m going to lay on the snark extra thick today. This level of failure, and the the persistence with which it’s adherents are pursuing it, is ridiculous, and is […]

Happy ClimateGateaversary!

A year ago today, the infamous ClimateGate controversy broke, changing the balance of power in the fight against the “progressive” nanny state.  Featuring emails hacked from the Climate Data Center at East Anglia, ClimateGate showed us climate scientists discussing the lack of warming, conspiring to silence critics, and, of course, “hiding the decline. ”  Since that time, the alarmists have continued in their efforts to tightly  control all human activity, even trying to change the name of their fake phenomena, yet again, to “Climate Disruption.” However, they have made absolutely no progress towards their long-term goals, so score one for […]

Global Climate Change is Caused by the Sun

Climate change (global warming) is caused by the sun. This may be a shock to you, but strangely enough, the same sun that causes the earth to grow warmer in the summer and colder in the winter also has long-term variations that cause long-term variations in the global temperature. Oh, I know what you are thinking “Humans are causing global warming by driving SUV’s and being evil towards Mother Earth and the solution is to adopt Communism.” But the truth of the matter is that humans and our actions are probably one of the smallest variables involved in ‘climate change’.

Enviro-Nazis Lose Their Tiny Collective Minds: The 10:10 Campaign

WARNING: This is NOT a family-friendly post. We’ve all read about the hard lefty enviro-nazis that want to either limit reproduction, or even kill people off to save the world.  You would think they would be a fringe. Or are they… WTF???  Seriously???  BLOWING UP CHILDREN???  I’ve posted some dud humor pieces before, but if tongue in cheek was what they were going for, they failed miserably.  On the other hand, if they were just threatening people, they have failed there as well.  I really can’t see how such a freaktarded display of failure is going to convince anyone of anything.  On […]

2,000 Year Chinese Temperature Record Reveals Global Warming is Normal

Late last year climategate rocked the world of global warming alarmists.  Before that point we were marching down a path towards a global environmental treaty to save the planet from the dangers of global warming and the green house gases (GHG) that were allegedly the main contributing factors behind the phenomena. In 2007, a full two years before climategate, the Supreme Court’s decision to classify CO2 as a GHG gave the EPA the power to regulate carbon emissions.  The EPA argued that there was only “a causal link between GHGs and climate warming and that was still not unequivocally established.” According to the ruling, EPA’s action not […]

Will it be Global Cooling Again?

Back in the 70′s, it was like this… “OMG, the Earth is going to cool, and we’re all going to dieeeeee!” Then, it was AGW, (until just recently). “OMG, the Earth is going to get too hot, and we’re all going to dieeeeee!” The solution for both scenarios was to limit our lifestyles, forget about capitalism, and let the government dictate every aspect of our lives. Obviously, we didn’t freeze in the 70′s, and he we haven’t roasted recently. In fact, more and more evidence is emerging that the climate alarmists have been lying, or at the very least, wrong […]

Mythical Creatures Plan Protest

Matt: Here’s a “classic”  post from the original Conservative Hideout. One really cool thing about the CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE Translation Matrix is that it will translate all sorts of mythical content.  When I switched it on this morning, I received a message from none other than Bigfoot!  Not wanting to miss an opportunity for a good story, I decided to interview him. Me: Hello Bigfoot, thanks for contacting me.  BTW, do you go by Bigfoot? Bigfoot: Thanks for answering, FYI, my name is Bill. Me: Mmkay, Bill it is.  What was the reason for contacting me?

Washington Dirty Tricks: Stupak and Cap-and-Trade

Let’s put aside political affiliation for the moment and look at the recent developments on Washington. The first one I would like to talk about is the fact that the day after Obama’s Health Care bill passed, Bart Stupak and his coalition of 10 pro-life representatives requested billions in earmarks. Remember that the “compromise” reached between the Democrat party and the Stupak 11 was for the president to issue an executive order banning the use of federal funds for abortion. Legally, executive orders cannot overturn laws passed by Congress, therefore, two posts ago, I accused the Democrats of bribing or […]
